    Pros

    the pay is good. the time time off is excellent. and people will always need drugs so this company is just going to get bigger and bigger, so job security is a plus.

    Cons

    You will need all 4 weeks of the time off in order to recuperate from the long hours ( 10 - 13 hr days if you work 8 hour shifts and 12 -14.5 hours if you are on the 4 day a week 10 hour shift) and mental exhaustion you will experience here. you will see explicit favoritism and may be bullied…

    Pros

    Team I was on had mostly good people and I genuinely cared about doing a great job for the team and work was challenging.
    Money was good

    Cons

    Absolutely no flexibility for working parents or even just doctors appointments!
    Manager had NO IDEA what I did but team loved me and knew I was a plus but all I got from him was how bad I was
    Manager was only in it for himself and if you weren't on messenger he would think you were off eating Bon Bons and not working when all I wanted was peace to focus on my work!
    No career growth at all

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Inflexible managers - promised flexibility but then none when I started and I had a 60-90 minute commute each way to work

    Pros

    The bar is set very low. You don't need to be competent to work here. As long as you keep your mouth shut and do the minimum to get by you'll likely have a job for life.

    Cons

    You'll get bored and it will kill your career. You'll be surrounded by tons of corporate toadies. DO NOT go here if you are in any sort of technical field. This is NOT a tech company. They are firmly rooted in old school corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Take a second look at all the kingdom building within your organization. Promotion from within isn't always a good thing. I'm specifically talking about IT and even more specifically Specialty IT. Those folks get paid waaaay too much. They'll never leave and you're actually encourage them to hold the status quo.

    Pros

    Benefits good
    Stable company
    Company overall is growing

    Cons

    Overworked. Wasn't uncommon to put in 60-80 hours a week.
    Underpaid compared to others within the IT field, particularly given the hours worked.
    IT Department restructuring and was a constant source of change.
    Little to no training.
    large number of managers with a few workers. Needed more people actually doing the day to day work.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create a better work environment for employees.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, ok work hours

    Cons

    Hired for call center and made the job sound like it would be a great fit for me. Training was horrible, not enough training and constantly micro-managed. Treated like a child and constantly reprimanded. Company let all former customer care go to save money and should have kept other call centers. Customers highly irate and mad about change.

    Advice to Management

    Made a big mistake
